Prodigal Son was canceled by Fox before its second season had finished, but the show’s creators are hopeful for a third season soon.
Since it premiered on Fox in 2019 with an all-star cast featuring Tom Payne and Michael Sheen, this program has been at the top of many must-see lists. However, due to the untimely cancellation of the show, the conclusion was an agonizing cliffhanger that fans now hope would not be the end.
Prodigal Son- The Show So Far
Even after it was cancelled, the trend that started as a sensation has persisted. On paper, the plot appears convoluted and sinister, but the film version is flawless, thanks in large part to the superb acting. Because of the ongoing epidemic, filming and post-production for Season 2 were put on hold until January 12th, 2021, after Season 1’s massive success in 2019.
Covid-19, the current global phenomenon, was used as the backdrop for this season’s storyline, which follows Malcolm Bright (Tom Payne) and his father, Dr Martin Whitly (Michael Sheen), as they try to convince their son that he can finally escape the manipulative and murderous ways that got him into trouble in the first place.
Cancellation Of Season 3
Chris Fedak and Sam Sklaver, the show’s creators, said they hoped for a third season soon when questioned about it. They added that they’ve been contacting different channels and even exploring OTT and streaming services for the upcoming season to be released on. They appear to have a pitch set up and ready to go. It’s only a matter of waiting for final approval and getting things rolling! However, they chose not to discuss the specifics of what viewers might expect in Season 3 to avoid spoilers.
The series finale is frequently used as a springboard for the upcoming season. Season 2’s 13th episode of The Prodigal Son wowed viewers so much that they’re eagerly awaiting its conclusion. Fans are so passionate about saving the Prodigal Son that the hashtag ‘#SaveProdigalSon’ is currently trending on Twitter. Even though this may appear to be a one-off viral moment, it could have a significant impact on the show’s future.
There’s also a petition signed by roughly 30k people from all across the world requesting that the show be renewed for season 3.
Though it may not be from Fox, it is evident that a third season is inevitable, given the present facts and current campaigns. This is great news for Season 2 fans who were left reeling by the season’s shocking cliffhanger. While we wait for the next season to address our many questions, we can only rewatch the episode and keep it fresh in our minds.
